The Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum is an exact copy of the historic huts at Cape Denison, East Antarctica, which were used as the main base for two years by the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE) of 1911-14 led by Australia's great Polar explorer Dr Douglas Mawson.
Located on the Hobart water front just 150 metres from where Mawson's expedition departed on December 2 1911, the Musuem is rated on www.tripadvisor as the No 1 Museum in the city. It is also rated as one of the top 10 "Things To DO" in the Tasmanian capital.
Built and operated by Mawson's Huts Foundation, a not for profit charity established in 1997 expressly to conserve the fragile buildings that Mawson and his men occupied for two years, the Replica Museum helps to raise funds for the ongoing of the Cape Denison site. It is open 7 days a week

The Mawson’s Huts Foundation is a not-for -profit charity established in 1997 expressly to conserve Mawson’s Huts at Cape Denison which served as the main base for two years of the 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE). The buildings have been named after the leader of the expedition Dr Douglas Mawson, a 29 year old geologist who was later knighted for his role.
Established with the full support of the Australian Government the Foundation works in partnership with the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) which has responsibility for maintaining the huts.
Between 1997 and 2013 the Foundation raised in excess of $8 million dollars in cash and in-kind support and from this has funded and organised 10 major expeditions to Cape Denison.
